Any easy way to find 1 IP address among many raw logs?

I have 6 months of raw log files, and I'm basically trying to find the quickest and easiest way to scan them for occurrences of one specific IP address.

I'm trying to figure out what days this one person was on my site and what they did while they were on it.

Is anything like this possible? Thanks.

How big are your files?

I start with Spotlight, which picks out the individual filenames, and then open them in SubEthaEdit.

Spotlight isn't an issue: it's made to be able to scan the whole computer, so obviously it can do my logs standing on its head. I don't know what SubEthaEdit's absolute ceiling is. For a while I was using it on an 85MB text file (not one of my logs, duh ;)). Got a bit sluggish, but it plugged along.

If you're on That Other Platform I assume there are equivalents for each.

Yup, I'm on Windows. :)

And the log files are around 6mb each give or take 1mb, but 6 months worth of them (one file for each day).

This. grep -R "ip" * is probably the easiest solution.
